News outlets report 38-year-old Amber Harrell and 31-year-old Jessica Fowler are charged with second-degree kidnapping and sexual battery.
The man told Raleigh police she was inside the bar’s bathroom in December when Harrell and Fowler started verbally abusing him.
The man says Harrell and Fowler continued to assault her outside the bathroom and ignored her and the bartender’s orders to stop.
The two women were released on bond; it’s unclear if they have lawyers.
Public bathrooms have been a flashpoint in North Carolina since Republican lawmakers in 2016 required transgender people to use rooms matching their birth certificates. The requirement was rescinded last year.
